Vegan Vanilla Blueberry Layer Cake

For my Birthday yearly I prefer to bake myself a cake, this yr would not be any totally different. I  had a Vegan Vanilla Blueberry Layer Cake in thoughts approach prematurely, I had purchased the substances, then this week occurred and I nearly delayed making the cake (however did not as a result of I’m posting it clearly).  It was fairly the curler coaster of issues final week, beginning final Monday discovering out that the shop of the deli I work at at present can be closing on the finish of the month and my final day can be Thursday.  Now, I’ve been there 16 years, and so I used to be actually unhappy about it as a result of I really like the folks I work with and it has develop into type of a second dwelling.  However I began making use of for jobs straight away so I do know I’ll survive and be okay even when I’ll miss everybody.  Then on Wednesday somebody hacked my Fb and posted banned content material, so Fb has suspended my private web page, I’ll by no means get it again (depends upon what they resolve after 30 days), and I cannot entry my Aromatic Vanilla Cake enterprise web page, and which may be deleted too if my private web page is.  So I apologize to anybody who has tried to message me or if I have not answered feedback, as a result of I’m not in a position to entry the web page. If you wish to ask me a query I’ll get the message if you happen to message me on Instagram or submit a touch upon right here.

However anyway, again to the cake I deliberate on making. I made a decision to make it anyway regardless of all of the stuff happening as a result of baking cheers me up!  It’s enjoyable to make cake in any case and it sounded actually good.  Eric’s Dad gave me some blueberry jam, so that’s what made me assume to make a Vegan Vanilla Blueberry Layer Cake within the first place.  I assumed it might have a blueberry frosting too and vanilla cake layers.  So, I made a traditional vanilla cake for the cake layers.  I used complete wheat pastry flour, however if you happen to needed to make use of common AP flour you possibly can use that as a substitute. Or if you happen to needed it gluten free, you possibly can use gluten free all goal flour, I like Bob’s Pink Mill all goal baking flour, I’ve used it earlier than with success.

The desserts smelled heavenly whereas baking!  I baked them a day forward of time, after which frosted them the subsequent day.  I often do that with cake, as a result of that approach I can guarantee it’s cooled utterly and I really feel like it’s extra sturdy. I made a blueberry vanilla buttercream frosting with blueberry powder to offer it a stunning purple coloration.  How do you make blueberry powder?  By mixing freeze dried blueberries in a blender till they’re a effective powder.  It offers the frosting a beautiful taste as nicely! I crammed the cake with Eric’s Dad’s Jam and it was excellent!

This cake turned out so heavenly!  The cake was tender and scrumptious, scented with vanilla and it paired completely with the gooey blueberry jam and wealthy candy blueberry buttercream frosting! It undoubtedly cheered me up and made the right Summer season Birthday cake!  If you happen to love blueberries, undoubtedly give this Vegan Vanilla Blueberry Layer Cake a strive!

Vegan Blueberry Vanilla Layer Cake

Makes one 2 layer 6 inch cake



  • 1 1/2 cups complete wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp maple sugar or granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder (1/2 tsp plus 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 flax eggs (2 Tbsp floor flax seed blended with 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp filtered water, allowed to sit down quarter-hour)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup oat milk (I used Oatly) or different plant primarily based milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract



  • 1 1/2 cups vegan butter, I used Earth Steadiness (at room temperature)
  • 3-4 Tbsp oat milk (or you need to use no matter plant primarily based milk you like), add 3 then if wanted add one other if frosting comes out too stiff
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried blueberries, blended in a blender till they’re effective powder
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar




  1. Preheat oven to 350F levels, and line 2 6 inch spherical cake pans with parchment on the underside and oil the edges.
  2. In a big bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and sea salt and whisk to mix.
  3. Add the flax eggs, avocado oil, milk, and vanilla and beat with an electrical mixer for a few minute (or a little bit longer if doing it by hand with a whisk).
  4. Pour the cake batter into the ready pans, dividing evenly between them.
  5. Place the desserts within the oven and bake for 25-Half-hour till the desserts are achieved within the middle (you’ll be able to insert a toothpick into the middle and it comes out nearly clear with a number of moist crumbs).
  6. Take away from the oven and let cool 20 minutes, then take away the desserts from the pans by reducing across the sides, inserting a plate on prime then inverting it and tapping on it.  Permit them then to chill utterly as soon as they’re out of the pans.
  7. To make the frosting, beat the butter with the milk and vanilla till fluffy.
  8. Add the blueberry powder, after which powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, and beat till utterly blended and light-weight and fluffy (if the frosting is just too stiff add that different Tbsp of milk).
  9. When able to frost, Place one cake layer on a plate, unfold about 1/4 inch thick layer of the frosting over that, then pipe a frosting barrier across the fringe of the cake in order that the filling doesn’t ooze (tall sufficient in order that will probably be thicker than the filling).
  10. Spoon the jam into the center of it and unfold out evenly to the barrier frosting.  Place the subsequent cake layer on prime.
  11. Unfold the remaining frosting on the highest and down the edges of the cake evenly, then place the remainder of the frosting in a pastry bag and use it to brighten the highest.  This frosting recipe makes sufficient that it’s best to have the ability to do some beneficiant piping decorations on prime, as a result of I like a variety of frosting!
  12. Serve the cake and revel in!



If you want to make a 9 inch spherical cake, double the whole recipe, and bake it in two 9 inch spherical pans, rising the baking time barely till the desserts are baked by about 30-35 minutes.
